Watching the latest “Everything Is A Remix” video the other day, I realized that we’re probably due for another Matrix sometime soon. By that, I don’t mean another installment of the Wachowski brothers’ uber-successful sci-fi series – I think we’re all done with that one, at least for awhile, right? – but another movie that seems to realign people’s sensibilities about genre cinema, and what it’s there for.
